My daughter is about to be 3 and she still sits at the dinner table in a high chair. It keeps her up to the table level, better than a booster seat, clean up is easier becasue it doesn't go on the floor and she is focused on eating and not trying to positioner herself so she can see over the table. What does your 3-year-old sit in? I'm just worried this will be one of those things that is working for me but one day I will realize oh no she should have been in a booster chair 6 months ago. You know like one day you look at your kid and realize wow those shorts are too small, how long have they been like this and I haven't realized!!!? ThanksAnswer Question

I use highchairs and booster seats with my 2 1/2 year old twins. We us the highchairs in the kitchen for breakfast, for coloring, for playing with play dough, for "helping" us cook, etc. We use the booster seats at the dining table for dinner in the evenings when we all sit down to eat together; they can escape from the boosters, so I can only use them when everyone is sitting at the table. They have lunch and snacks at daycare most days, and they sit at small cafeteria tables there. I'm tired of tripping over the highchairs, but I'm not ready to give up the one place I can still contain them!
